In today's episode you get to witness the complete transformation of an overgrown backyard jungle into a beautiful grow area. With an only partially working lawnmower, this proved to be much more difficult than anticipated. I also begin re-construction of my in ground/raise bed area, and decided to make it larger for more grow space as well.

If there was only one piece of advise I could give for early in the season, it would be to ALWAYS CHECK THE WEATHER FORECAST!! When we went to San Francisco/Oakland for the weekend, of course the weather in Portland spiked to over 90 degrees when I only instructed my roommate to water once. As a result, my plants burned in the sun. If I would have checked the weather, the plants would have received more water than usual, and in all likelihood would have experienced healthy growth instead of singed leaves.

I treated the plants by manicuring damaged sections of leaves with scissors, and completely removing some leaves that were too far gone (as well as topping one plant). There has not been much sun since our trip, so lets just say the plants have not been through an ideal situation lately. Most of them however have since rebounded.

Here is the series so far:

Episode 1: Planning Your Grow

Episode 2: Transplanting Cannabis, Organic Pest Control, Strain Varieties

Please enjoy episode 3 of this year's Backyard Cannabis Farming series. Hopefully we all acquire wisdom for growing cannabis effectively and organically together.

Check your weather, great tip! I actually dealt with the same issue, but it was rain. I have some plants halfway through flower, and it started to pour here! Luckily there not very big, and I was able to bring them inside over the night to dry.

I have been pulling my plants under the roof of our back porch when it rains. It is actually pouring right now. Thinking about transplanting into the big pots/raised bed tomorrow though. If I do, there will be no more rain protection for them until the end of the season.

Thats exactly why I stopped using oil type products on plants like neem oil. They would clog the stomata and inflict that exact kind of damage on the plants. Crazy if that was heat damage. I got clones last year from Sonoma, CA and they were 4' and came directly to vegas under 130°+ in direct sun. Well it was only one plant right? Plenty more im sure you can plant while this plant recoups!

·

It was actually 4 plants, but that is why I always grow more clones than I need to start. Best case scenario, you have extra clones to pass on to a few friends, worst case, you have back-ups. I actually used lime sulfur for bugs this time, not neem, but I have been considering a neem treatment - probably not yet however, and after this comment, probably not going to at all unless there is an outbreak. Thank you for the heads up. @Alchemage, what do you think about neem clogging the stomata?

As @dynamicgreentk mentioned, a little goes a long way and it’s easy to over-do neem treatments. Oils can clog stomata, but if used in the correct ratio then you’ll be just fine. Also only applying when it’s not too hot or cold and the sun isn’t directly beating down.

It makes no sense though that it would leave a carcinogenic residue two weeks before harvest but no other time. From my understanding, Neem oil is completely safe. The only reason you don’t put it on before harvest is because then your flowers end up with a very strange off putting peanut butter taste. Far as I’m aware that is.

On the contrary, a quick search reveals neem oil as being a cancer preventative: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4734358/

It's just easy to over use it. a little goes a long way. I have read that applying two weeks before harvest will leave a residue that is carcinogenic but I can not find literature anymore to support that.

I would not use any organic pest control products any later than 2-3 weeks into flower. The flowers will absorb them otherwise.

I have however used anti-fungal products late into flower to battle powdery mildew. No negative properties transmuted into the end product in that situation.

Have you heard of this? It's a natural bug solution that is sulfer based and water based...

Interesting information awesome job!
Also, why doesn't Dtube ever work for me? So frustrating.

I'm thinking with a little bit of editing and one of those snappy ebook programs, you have the makings of a great "how to" ebook to sell through @homesteaderscoop :)
